Preserving Spectra, Sharing Knowledge

We need your help!

Whilst we realise that you may not be able to share all your spectra, it is likely that you will have many that are not confidential and would help to make the IS-DB a truly valuable resource. Please deposit what you can. You might also like to consider depositing the spectra related to your publications when you submit them to a journal. You will be able to link from the data on the IS-DB to the journal, and with Publishers who are supporting the IS-DB from the journal to the spectral data.

We have made it easy to deposit data, but if you run into any difficulties we have set up a number of Hotlines that can help you out. You can contact us by e-mail, telephone or fax in Czech, English, French, Portuguese and Spanish.
